As a clinician-scientist, I have built my career around the care of women throughout pregnancy, while simultaneously working to advance the scientific understanding of pregnancy complications such as preterm birth and placenta accreta spectrum. 
I have advanced training in the medical and surgical care of women with pregnancies affected by medical conditions or pregnancy-related complications, as well as basic science expertise in immunology and tolerance mechanisms of pregnancy.
